Queer Central is proud to present the debut of Peta Morris Performer to our family. It’s been quite some time since performer Peta Morris, graced the stage with her powerhouse vocals on top dance hit & gay anthem 'Just The Thing' with icon Paul Mac. She is back, just having written a one-woman show, ‘Baggage Limit’. She will be bringing two of her colourful characters Wayne and Carmen to the Imperial. Watch as Carmen brings 1960’s Kings Cross alive through projections & live performance of a song she wrote, based on kings cross dancer her dad knew at The Pink Pussycat, about marriage and her mum's coming out. Wayne channels the disputable wisdom and poetry of John Laws.

Queer Central will be hosting the club Dr Kerryn Drysdale's book launch of:
Intimate Investments in Drag King Cultures: The Rise and Fall of a Lesbian Social Scene

"By the mid-1990s, momentum was building behind the urge to create a local version of the types of drag king cultures taking place in the US, UK and Canada, and Sydney was one of the first places in Australia to put on a dedicated drag king event series. But while Sydney’s local drag king scene is indebted to pioneering efforts in carving out performance spaces for women, the creation of 'Kingki Kingdom' (renamed in 2006 to 'Queer Central') became the epicentre of social lesbian culture in Newtown.”
-- Dr Kerryn Drysdale
